Kevin Hart was no match for fellow standup Chris Rock as Saturday Night Live host but still delivered solid ratings last night. The NBC late-night program kicked off 2015 with a show hosted by Hart and musical guest Sia that averaged a 4.1 rating in the metered market households and a 2.0 in adults 18-49 in the markets with Local People Meters. That was up a tenth in households and even in the demo from SNL‘s most recent original telecast on Dec. 20 hosted by Amy Adams.

SNL‘s high mark of the season remains the Nov. 1 show hosted by Chris Rock with musical guest Prince, which drew a 4.9 rating in the metered markets households and a 2.4 adults 18-49.
